Betting tips and match preview | Premier League
Liverpool welcome Swansea to Anfield in another round of Premier league fixtures, with this match the first of the weekend.
Jurgen Klopp’s men come into this match on the back of a 1-1 draw against Manchester United, away in the Premier League.
James Milner (27), got his side off to the perfect start, with the left back converting his sixth penalty this season.
The former Manchester City man has never lost a game when he has scored, he was able to continue this miraculous feat.
Liverpool continued to frustrate United, with Paul Pogba having a poor match, especially after giving the penalty away.
United left it late to equalise, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic (84) scoring after some excellent work from Antonio Valencia to cut it back.
Winless Streak Continues
The Reds have had an excellent season, but they have struggled in their last four matches, failing to register a win.
It’s been a poor last four matches for Liverpool, with draws against United, Plymouth and Sunderland and a defeat against Southampton.
Simon Mignolet had an excellent game between the sticks against United, keeping out Ibrahimovic and co for a long period of the match.
Liverpool head into this fixture as the overwhelming favourites, despite their mixed recent form and enhanced by their current Premier League position.
With the absence of European football this season, they have been able to perform well in the league and they desperately want the title.
The Reds will be looking to continue their overall record against Swansea, with 9 wins, 4 draws and 4 defeats in 17 matches.
Reds In Poor Form
Swansea come into this match on the back of a 4-0 defeat away against Arsenal, a result that flattered the Gunners.
An opening goal from Olivier Giroud (37), ensured Arsenal got off to the perfect start and went into the break 1-0 up.
Jack Cork scored Swansea’s first own goal of the day in the 54th minute, doubling the visitors advantage.
Kyle Naughton (67) scored the second own goal of the day just 13 minutes later, with Sanchez putting the icing on the cake in the 73rd minute.
Swans Seek Fresh Start
It has been a very tough start to life for Paul Clement, he has now lost his first two matches in charge of this side.
They have lost matches against Hull in the FA Cup, with the poor result against Arsenal meaning they have conceded six in the last two games.
Clement is the third manager of the season for Swansea, at this stage there is nothing to suggest he will fare any better than his predecessors.
Swansea head into this fixture as the underdogs, with Liverpool’s form and Swansea’s inconsistent form contributing.
They will be looking to register their fifth win of the season, in the process securing a second win in four matches.
The Swans will be looking to improve their recent record against Liverpool, they have lost five of the last six meetings.
Both teams are 5/6 on to score. The first goalscorer odds for Liverpool are Daniel Sturridge at 11/4 with Divock Origi at 3/1. For Swansea, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Fernando Llorente are at 12/1 with Borja Baston at 14/1.
The last time that these two sides met Liverpool won 2-1 and the odds of the same result are 17/2.
